Every organisation has its own risk profiles, tolerances, and appetites on key measures. Our compliance solutions are tailored to a licensee’s risk appetite and industry regulations, rather than a simple checklist solution.

In Cristean’s experience, this tailored approach to regulation and compliance resonates very favourably with licensee Boards and Committees, who are keen to ensure that their businesses are being conducted with the organisations’ risk imperatives front of mind. Compliance solutions which adopt a “checklist” approach to the issues and focus on the “black letter law” are generally found to have less effectiveness and value.
